Set Expectations

Don’t rush into moving in with your partner. Take the time to discuss expectations and boundaries ahead of time. If you feel ready to move in together, you are probably already aware of their habits and behaviors, so hopefully, there won’t be too many surprises. If you notice things like your partner not contributing to the cleanliness of the home or inability to wash the dishes, talk it out beforehand and discuss the roles. Neither partner should be expected to do everything, so establish the fair share of responsibilities, bills, etc. before moving. 

Build a Home Together

Although one person may be more of the “home-maker” type, that doesn’t mean they should make all of the decisions. Work together to create a home perfect for both of you. If you have similar tastes, this is easier, but even if you like very different things, be sure to compromise to create a balanced home. If you have the luxury of a two-bedroom apartment, consider allowing each person to decorate one room to their liking so that each unique personality is accurately represented in the home. 

Discuss Schedules

One of the most critical aspects to discuss ahead of time is scheduling. If one person is an early riser and the other could sleep all day, it can lead to issues later on. The person who wants to get up early shouldn’t have to tiptoe around in silence, and the person who sleeps in more shouldn’t have to feel guilty for their night owl habits. Sit down and go over a regular schedule. It’s essential to discuss what days you would like to sleep in, what days you want to have guests over, what hours should be considered “quiet time,” and even little things like television time. With more people working and studying from home, it’s best to get on the same page about scheduling. 

If you’re ready to move in with your significant other, consider the aforementioned tips. We can’t wait to help you find the perfect home for your new life together.
